There once was a time where Al Cisneros, singer and bassist for stoner-metal band Sleep, would play music about the finer things in life (see: the hour-long epic “Dopesmoker”). But in 2003 he found solace in a new project: OM. Decidedly different than Sleep, the band plays experimental style of drone music. Incorporating Catholic, Hindu and Sufi themes against the backdrop of foreboding-sounding cellos, chanting vocals, and slow dirge-like drum work, Om is heavy in their own right.
Now we all know that concert tickets come at a premium these days – so that’s why we’re giving a tickets away to OM’s show at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall.
